Ms. Liz Cohen
The 2019-20 school year was a major challenge for all of us! It’s been a privilege to be your teacher and watch you grow and realize your potential in Language Arts. Despite the unique learning situation that Covid-19 presented to us at the end of the school year, I believe you are ready to face the challenging task of being high school freshmen.
I will remember all of you not for this time of quarantine, but for the moments we had together as a learning community. The creativity and savvy you demonstrated by selling each other items in Shark Tank. How many of you overcame your nerves to debate difficult topics in front of your peers. How you pushed through uncertainty and put together a poetry project to proudly display outside in the hall. I was heartened by the hard work you put in when confronted with a difficult tasks and when many of you stepped up as leaders to help one another.
I want you to know that I am eternally proud of you all. For every exciting moment, there were also the struggles and growing pains of cramming new knowledge and juggling seven classes worth of work. Being a student is hard! Yet you all persevered and will now move on to the challenges of high school.
Meeting your educational needs has made me a better teacher. Please don’t be a stranger, you can always visit if you find you miss middle school! Best wishes to you all and have a great summer.
